Manulife Financial begins online volunteerism program
Manulife Financial has begun a 12-week online campaign intended to take the form of an interaction with Canadians on the subject of volunteerism. The program is being conducted in association with Volunteer Canada and managed by The Mark News via a Facebook page. It is intended to provide a forum for volunteers, community members, not-for-profit organizations and others to exchange views on various topics relevant to the Canadian volunteer sector. "Volunteerism is essential to the well-being and health of our communities, which is why Manulife Financial's commitment to supporting the volunteer sector is a critical part of our vision to help build a better future for all Canadians one hour at a time," said Nicole Boivin, senior vice-president of human resources and communications at Manulife. "We are hoping to spark a thoughtful dialogue about the issues facing individuals and organizations in the volunteer sector that will ultimately help to identify ways to grow volunteerism across the country."
